Pros: Weight, Balance, Construction, Materials
Just about the best collapsible batons on the market
I am a certified ASP baton instructor, received my Talon DiscLoc baton two months ago. First thing I did was compare it to a Monadnock Autolock Baton (and a ASP LeverLoc), the results; I would say they are neck and neck with each other. In my option, both are excellent batons but I favor the Talon over the Autolock. The Talon has a larger release button than the Autolock. The only other comparison would be to the ASP LeverLoc, which is preference on closure of the baton. You really can’t compare the Talon to a friction lock even thou it serves the same purpose as you need to have a hard surface to close a friction lock baton while a Talon or LeverLoc do not need a hard service. In regards to Pro/Cons, heavier is good personally speaking but know some LEO that would list this as a CON, you need to consider that the Talon is a heavy baton yet comfortable to carry.
